With the holidays right around the corner, a chance to bring a little bit of the Pacific Northwest to the family table just got a little easier. Wine lovers visiting their favorite Willamette Valley vineyards Portlanders can treat their friends and family to a little taste of Oregon when they arrive with a case of some of the world’s best wines.
Traveling with wine this holiday season is much easier than you might think, and it’s free, too! The Oregon Wines Flies Free program allows anyone traveling from Oregon to check up to one case of wine for free on any Alaska Airlines flight from any of Oregon’s wine growing regions including Portland, Eugene, Medford, Redmond or even our neighbors to the north in Walla Walla, WA.
Wine lovers visiting Oregon, especially during the popular wine tasting weekend of Thanksgiving, can also enjoy a complimentary tasting at more than 300 participating wineries when they simply show an in-bound boarding pass and proof of Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan membership.
So when you’re winding your way through the rolling hills of McMinnville, checking out whats going on in Carlton, or tasting your way through the barrels in Newberg, you’ll be able to pop open the cork on your favorite gems you found on your trip without having to worry about paying for shipping.
No matter where you live, you can revel in the layered flavors and award-winning winemaking of Oregon’s wine country while sharing it with the ones you love.
